I often have parents that come to me that want to do a newborn session, but are concerned their baby is too old. I have had newborns up to 8 weeks old, and it takes a little more patience, but it definitely can be done! I know that most newborn photographers prefer baby to be between 5 and 15 days old (or a variation of that), but I am always willing to give it a try! Usually what it means is that your session will take a lot more patience, and we may not be able to get baby into all the normal things I do with newborns, but I can guarantee you'll still receive some beautiful images.
This baby girl was 7 weeks old when she came to me. Mom requested a few different setups, including some "rainbow baby" setups, and I'm in love. I have rainbow baby props but it isn't a request I get too often, so I got to pull out all my props and have some fun. Not surprisingly, we had a bit of a struggle getting baby girl to settle for her photos, but once she was asleep, she was so easy and we got lots of great photos for her momma! Mom had chosen my wrapped mini session, so baby stayed wrapped for all the photos. I LOVE the wrapped mini sessions. You still receive beautiful photos of your baby, but its a lot less stress because you can sit back and relax, and we can get photos of baby even if they stay awake the entire time.
